Trivia

Holds a record for the most expensive German movie screenplay. During development, producers demanded constant rewrites from the original authors - who had to be paid for every single draft. Then, after the production had already spent around 250.000 Euro on the script, it was finally rejected and writer Timo Berndt started from scratch to write the script that ended up being used.

Goofs

Eva Habermann has through the whole movie some cream boots except in the scenes where she sprang out of the helicopter on the roof of the building. There she had some terrain flat shoes in same color. See more »

Funny Movie
22 October 2005 | by mattinSee all my reviews

Who the heck visits a movie spin-off of a German trash TV-Series and doesn't know what to expect? This film was great: funny lines, great stunts, simple story. It delivered exactly, what I needed! In fact, it was like a double feature of the show with more budget. Well, the director seems to be a little bit "over-talented", but in the end, it was a great fun to watch this movie. The acting was OK, the only downside was the replacement of Diana Frank as Claudia Diel. The movie would have worked the same way with the original team and I'm not sure, why they replaced her with Eva Habermann. Maybe it was because off age or money, I don't know.
